With fresh fruit and basil from the garden, this homemade soda is a perfect summer treat! The recipe is based on the recipe from BON APPÉTIT but is tweaked a little to appease our sweet tooth.
2 fresh lemons
6 fresh basil leaves
6 fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
A touch of salt
Directions: Remove seeds from lemons. Chop in half and squeeze both lemons into a cup. Chop basil and strawberries into bite-size pieces. Put all ingredients into the cup and muddle until sugar dissolves.
Strain all the liquids into your glass with ice
Add soda water and a strawberry or lemon garnish
Serve! We made a pitcher by quadrupling the recipe.
